With a name inspired by Miriam Haynie's fascinating 1959 history of the Northern Neck, our new house features three bedrooms, two baths, a living room, family room, kitchen, dining room, morning room and laundry room.

We've dreamt of a sanctuary like this for some time, and now it's become a reality.  A place to relax, to enjoy time together with friends and family, to make memories.
